Raised by 0 people in days for Alzheimer's Australia Vic
Some of you who know us well know that my Father has been suffering with Dementia for some years but was officially diagnosed 4 years ago. It goes without saying this is a cause extremely close to my heart.
Our family has watched as our beautiful Father/Father in law/Brother/Husband/Friend has changed from a "daily golfer", "mountain hiker", "happy, friendly, loves a laugh at any time" "do anything for anyone" sort of a guy too someone who is confined to a wheelchair. Who cannot talk, can barely even communicate. Most days doesn't recognise his own immediate family. He's probably in his own personal hell. However, having to stand by and watch, completely useless, as someone you love, is reduced to this "shell" is absolute torture. Unfortunately it's too late for my Father and all we can do is to make sure he receives the best care possible but something needs to be done to prevent this occurring to other people. I would not want anyone else to suffer as we have.
So to try and help in some minor way, our little family is participating in the Memory Walk & Jog - Melbourne to help raise money for Alzheimer’s Australia Vic. Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia and there is no cure! I'm sure many of you have been touched by this awful disease in some way.
Help us to help Alzheimer’s Australia Vic them reach their goal of raising $75,000 from this event. As you have noticed, I have never asked for money for fundraising, so please dig deep on this one occasion and lets kick this into superdrive! I would welcome any contribution that you could make!
Thank you for making a difference.
